There is some evidence that people with a visible tattoo are considered to be less attractive than are people without a visible tattoo. Resenhoeft, Villa, and Wiseman (2008) showed one group of students a color photograph of a 24-year-old woman with a tattoo of a dragon on her arm. A second group of students was shown the same photograph but with the tattoo removed. Each participant was asked to rate the attractiveness of the woman in the photograph.

**a.** Identify the independent variable for this study.

**b.** What scale of measurement is used for the independent variable?

**c.** Identify the dependent variable for this study.

**d.** What scale of measurement is used for the dependent variable?
